Reviews
Average Rating:  
Recent Review: I'm a former Boy Scout leader & Eagle scout Dad, so I've run this every year it's been held (5k first 2 yrs.; half every yr. since) to support scouting. Race is well-organized. As advertised - flat fast course. Course change couple years ago was great because now you run right thru downtown B.G. Good support on course= water, gatorade, GU. Not a lot of swag, but a decent shirt, finisher medal & post race food.

Still using GU, PowerGel or Clif SHOT?
See why athletes are making the switch to e-Gel, the only Electrolyte Energy Gel. Get 230 mg Sodium, 85 mg Potassium and more complex carbs than any other gel.
